My Congressman Is Nuts

from mycongressmanisnuts.com:

Alan Grayson's recent self indulgent behavior has paralyzed his ability to serve as an advocate for the citizens of Central Florida. On December 16th 2009, the day on which the Sons of Liberty dumped 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor, Central Floridians will again say no to the overreaching government intrusion propagated by Grayson. Central Floridians will drop a money bomb to show Grayson and Pelosi that an oppressive, overreaching government has not and never will be what makes America great.

Pledge your support today, so that we may deliver our message to all the voters of Central Florida.

N.B. Alan Grayson is one Member out of 435 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Most districts are gerrymandered, helping to make it nearly impossible to unseat incumbents even when ... they are nuts!

Have They Severed Ties? Following our discovery last week of the hypocritical use of a "union-busting" law firm by the Democratic establishment (including the Democratic National Committee and POTUS), we've been waiting for the establishment to sever their ties to this firm ... We're still waiting.

Whose Driving America's Bus? Apparently, its Andy Stern and his purple-clad comrades. With 22 visits to the White House, Andy tops the list. What else has Stern & the Gang directed the White House to do?

United Against Work. The ever-shrinking UAW has voted to deny Ford Motor Co. a competitive contract, following the contracts of GM and Chrysler. Did the UAW just kill Ford too? Could there also be a conflict of interest?

Your Taxes at Work. Chrysler Offers 23,000 workers early retirement. Guess who's subsidizing that?

Boeing, Boeing ... Gone! The wait is over. Earlier this week, despite making its demands clear to a defiant IAM, Boeing announced its decision to locate its second production line to South Carolina, sending a strong message to an anti-business Washington State and its 'Fighting Machinists'.

Teamsters Celebrate Anniversary on Strike. Despite employees voting to decertify last May and the plant doing fine, those crazy horses over at the Teamsters continue picketing Metalworks.

Yankees or Phillies? [Who cares in the West?] Both are playing under the threat of (another) SEPTA strike in Philadelphia.

Pickets a Go-Go…? Not yet. UFCW members in Colorado are feeling a bit frustrated that the UFCW national bosses haven't released them to hit the streets yet.

Harley-Davidson, our favorite V-Twin makers, announce a plan to outsource approximately 400 more Machinists' jobs in Pennsylvania.

Union Corruption Corner:

* Sticky-Fingered Steelworker gets one year for swiping $48k.

* Where'd the Money Go? AFSCME Local 1324 is searching for $13k of its members' money ... Apparently it just walked away.

* $13K Will Get You Six Months ... If you happen to be former CWA President Belinda Woods.

* Machinists' Money Pit? And 27 months in federal prison was the sentence for former pension manager Harvey Keil for stealing $341,000.

* How Do You Plead? Apparently former SEIU boss Alejandro Stephens is set to plead guilty on two counts of mail fraud and one count of filing a false tax return.

* Just the usual: Union fraud in Detroit (even Kwame is involved)

Remaking U.S. leadership

Obama Administration demands global economic harmonization
via indiatimes.com, 10/30/09: "At the risk of sounding undiplomatic, Pakistan has to have internal investment in your public services and your business opportunities," [Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton said, adding, in a reference to the large-scale tax evasion in the country. ''The percentage of taxes on GDP is among the lowest in the world... We (the United States) tax everything that moves and doesn’t move, and that’s not what we see in Pakistan."
Apparently, President Ronald Reagan's view, offered to delegates attending the White House Conference on Small Business, August 15, 1986, still pertains:
"[G]overnment's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

Union-backed GOP candidate fail

Big Labor bails

from timesunion.com: The first ones out of the gate: United Auto Workers CAP Region 9 ... endorsing Democrat Bill Owens.
“We would like to commend Dede Scozzafava for a hard-fought campaign and she will always be a friend of the UAW. Like Bill Owens, she has been a fighter for working families and a dedicated public servant. Doug Hoffman’s commitment to privatizing Social Security, opposing efforts to reform healthcare, and supporting tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans is directly at odds with the best interests of working families in Upstate New York, and right now we can’t afford to send a voice for those kinds of priorities to Congress.”
